The Oak Alley plantation tour is one of the most magnificent plantation tours near New Orleans because of the 28 evenly spaced, huge Oak Trees that stretch from River Road to the Plantation House. Located on the ground is a restaurant, blacksmith shop, Souvenir Shop and antique farm equipment. You'll tour the house and have extra time to explore.

The Laura Plantation tour near New Orleans is considered by many as the best historical plantation tour in the Mississippi Valley. Four women ran the plantation over 60 years using slave labor. You will get to view and enter the 1840’s slave quarters as part of this tour. You will hear stories of all aspects of the plantation life.

Good trip but the tour is literally transport to the plantations and entry fee to both plantations. .

Our guide at Laura Plantation, Rose, was absolutely amazing! What a great story teller. Both plantations were interesting, but my favourite was the Laura Plantations and that is large part due to the amazing story.

This tour provides the opportunity to visit a very beautiful plantation Oak Alley and then proceed to Laura where you gain a real history lesson relating to the early plantation times in the South. Our tour guide at the plantation was incredible. She was very passionate about relating the history and the tragic stories of the family who resided at the plantation. One of the best of many tours taken to plantations in the U.S.

Would recommend this trip. Both tours guides were very knowledgable.

Everything about this tour was fantastic - from the transportation to the tour guides. Oak Alley Plantation was more about putting you in the time and telling you about it. The tour guides wear period dress and talk almost as if they know the characters. The Laura Plantation tour is more about Creole history and facts. Both tour guides were very passionate about their subject and you can tell they are concerned about the preservation of the history of this part of Louisiana.

Very interesting tour with two very different plantations. Guides knew the history and a young fellow at tha Laura just radiated a love of what he was doing.
